Description - Governing the European Economy by Grahame F. Thompson

This is the first text to accessibly introduce, map and explain the nature of the European economic space and its importance to the development of the future shape of Europe. It will enable students to: understand what is meant by the 'economy' and assess the nature and role of 'governance' in a European economic context; review the economic history of the EU and the key economic relationships of the EU and member states; distinguish between both de facto (private) and de jure (public) integrative and disintegrative processes; examine competing ideas of a European 'regulatory order', 'market system' or set of 'self-organizing networks' to capture the characteristics of the contemporary European economy; and consider questions raised by technological innovation and the environment to locate Europe within the changes and trends in the international and global political economy. Governing the European Economy will be an essential text for all students of European economic integration and the EU across politics and international studies, economics, geography, sociology and European studies.
